My rant from the last post detailing my infatuation with white ensembles presents itself in the form of this outfit. In addition to the color white, I (and my lovely blogger counterparts, like my other half Zoe
) have been loving white mesh and metallics (which includes that of the holographic sort, as seen on various runways ranging from Stella McCartney
to Nanette Lepore
). Yet it's pretty obvious that white and silver are perfect for a fast-approaching summer. In fact, a silly little thought popped into my head the other day: if you think about it, both whites and metallics like silver are thought of as methods of combatting global warming, as they reflect the sun to ensure that heat isn't absorbed! So, here I am, dressing to combat global warming (not really

In my attempt to search for a form of white mesh - I've dissected a Zara dress (it's detachable) that my best friend gifted me last summer; it originally had another white lace shift underneath it. I have chosen, instead, to wear it scandalously on its own (no worries, over a pair of shorts).
Anyhow, I've been in love with both structure/minimalism (look at my nails) as well as fluid fabrics. While I've recently acquired some beautifully-structured pieces like my purse and the notorious Zara skort (here

I'm wearing. In their shapelessness, these flowy pieces, with a life of their own, paradoxically find shape. I just happen to love clothing without a waistline, or with a simple dropwaist, both of which I find much more refreshing than your typical dress/shirt-form.
And of course, who can resist a good old harness boot
to ground a very buoyant outfit?
See you soon lovelies, xx! My weekend starts tomorrow - will be attending an exciting event that I'll tell you about later!
